Tailgate Guard


Tailgate Guard

Designed to protect your inside boot door or tailgate from scratches, muddy paws and dog hairs, the Tailgate Guard has proven highly effective, especially for carpeted surfaces. Attaching to your VersaLiner or Load Liner via pop studs, it is being very easy to fix or remove.

Note: This is an optional extra to the VersaLiner or Load Liner, and therefore cannot be purchased to use as a standalone product.


"Is the Tailgate Guard right for me?"

The Tailgate Guard is ideal if you have dogs, and need to protect your inside door. Also handy if  your dogs tend to make a quick exit before you are ready to let them out!

  • "Absolutely brilliant products, wish I'd found them for previous cars! Fit my 2011 Qashqai perfectly, easy to clean and they keep my boot carpet beautifully clean. The de-luxe bumper guard is a great item and stops paintwork damage when my Labrador jumps into the boot. Also she's a great chewer, but has never attempted to have a go at the VersaLiner mat! Success all round, so thanks Boot Buddy!"

    Carol Warr / Nissan Qashqai +2 (2008-2013) (5-seat configuration)

  • "The unit is proving very useful indeed. I was very impressed with the fitting service offered. I have no hesitation in recommending the product."

    Charlie Sadler / Volkswagen Golf Estate (2013-present) (adjustable floor in raised position)

  • "I am very pleased with my purchase. This is the second boot buddy I have bought. It keeps my car so clean, there are muddy dogs in it most days and it is easy and quick to hose down and dry. "

    Christine Cooper / Skoda Yeti Hatchback (2009-2017) (spare wheel fitted - higher floor)

  • "The Boot Buddy was recommended by a friend and has been a great purchase. I have two spaniels who I walk twice daily and the VersaLiner is ideal to stop the boot of the car becoming really dirty. It is easy to clean and maintain and I would recommend this to all dog owners. The Tailgate guard stops them from chewing the rubber handle and when the boot is open it offers a barrier to the dogs to encourage them to stay where they are, even when they see something that they want to chase! The Bumper Guard has been very successful in preventing those little scratches that you get when the dogs climb out of the boot. All in all a very worth while purchase."

    David Richards / Skoda Yeti Hatchback (2009-2017) (no spare wheel fitted - lower floor)

  • "Brilliant product. We wanted something to keep the car clean but mainly something to stop our 3 dogs jumping out when the boot is opened. The Tailgate Guard is ideal for that. Although it has magnets on it we had to add Velcro strips to stop the dogs pushing it over. Other than that it is perfect. Delivery was estimated at up to 3 weeks but it arrived in just over 1 week. Humans and dogs (Dixie, Bailey & Harley) definitely recommend Boot Buddy."

    Joyce Richardson / Vauxhall Insignia Sport Tourer (2009-2017)
